**Abstract**

For two graphs $\mathrm{G}$ and $\mathrm{H}$ with $n$ and $m$ vertices, the corona $\mathrm{G}\circ\mathrm{H}$ of $\mathrm{G}$ and $\mathrm{H}$ is the graph obtained by taking one copy of $\mathrm{G}$ and $n$ copies of $\mathrm{H}$ and then joining the $i^{th}$ vertex of $\mathrm{G}$ to every vertex in the $i^{th}$ copy of $\mathrm{H}$. The neighborhood corona $\mathrm{G}\star\mathrm{H}$ of $\mathrm{G}$ and $\mathrm{H}$ is the graph obtained by taking one copy of $\mathrm{G}$ and $n$ copies of $\mathrm{H}$ and joining every neighbor of the $i^{th}$ vertex of $\mathrm{G}$ to every vertex in the $i^{th}$ copy of $\mathrm{H}$. In this paper, we define four new extensions of corona and neighborhood corona of two graphs $\mathrm{G}$ and $\mathrm{H}$; named the identity-extended corona, identity-extended neighborhood corona, neighborhood extended corona and neighborhood extended neighborhood corona and then determine the spectrum of their adjacency matrix, where $\mathrm{H}$ is a regular graph. As an application, we exhibit infinite families of integral graphs.
